Telx® is proud to announce today, October, 10th 2012, that Cross River Fiber is constructing ultra low-latency fiber into Telx’s Clifton, New Jersey data center. Telx, a leading provider of global interconnectivity, clo
ud enablement services and data center solutions, is directly in the crossroads of Cross River Fiber’s new dark fiber network build. Cross River’s network will routes pass through their, NJR2 facility at 100 Delawanna Ave and NJR3 data center at 2 Peekay, on its way to financial exchanges in Secaucus and Weehawken, New Jersey.
Cross River Fiber manages, designs and constructs independent fiber optic routes throughout New Jersey and the company’s new routes are purpose built to reduce latency to NYSE’s Mahwah facility from current fiber optic routes.
CEO of Cross River Fiber, Vincenzo “Enzo” Clemente commented on their new partnership stating, “Expanding our network footprint in New Jersey at Telx’s impressive new facility will strengthen our service offerings to the financial community. Our construction capabilities and secure network design are at the forefront of the industry and we are proud to partner with Telx to offer existing and new customers across a variety of industries the highest quality network solutions available.”
Not only does this new partnership offer the most direct path between Telx’s Clifton facilities and Mahwah, but the fiber route will provide customers with low latency connectivity to multiple financial exchanges.
Telx, although already operating a significant campus environment at 100 Delawanna, is in the process of constructing a
three-story data center, NJR3, providing 215,000 square feet of energy efficient, high power density space. The NJR3 facility, similar to Telx’s C3 Cloud Connection Centers is a carrier-neutral, secure networki
ng environment, a full 2N design and is the only data center throughout the area that is powered by independent electrical sub-stations.
“The New Jersey market continues to be a prime source of investment and expansion for Telx. Working with one of New Jersey’s leading fiber optic solution providers strengthens our ability to offer global connectivity services to our customers both in New Jersey and around the globe,” said Eric Shepcaro, CEO, Telx. “With construction firmly under way, we are excited for the opening of our NJR3 facility, and with the support of Cross River Fiber, Telx will be able to offer reduced latency that benefits our new and existing customers in the tri-state area.”
